Welcome to the community @dvrk. I think most of your questions are covered in our community article Cloudera Certification FAQ and the CCA-500 page on Cloudera.com. If you have any further questions after reading through those, let me know and I will see what I can find out. :)

 

Best of luck.

Re: Cloudera Certified Administrator for Apache Hadoop (CCA-500) - Exam Pattern

Dear Jervis, Thanks a lot for the information. But the answer to my specific query is not clear from the FAQ.

 

As requested please confirm me on the below:

 

(1) Is the exam pattern is going to be Question with Multiple choice type or it is going to be descriptive one.

Kindly confirm on this.

 

(2) Any sample questions from the exam so that we can prepare for the exam based on that. 

 

Best Regards,

DVRK

Re: Cloudera Certified Administrator for Apache Hadoop (CCA-500) - Exam Pattern

I think for those questions the  CCA-500 page on Cloudera.com should be what you are looking for as it lays out the exam sections and blueprint. By reading through it it looks like a descriptive test but I can double check if you still need clarification after looking it over. 

 

For example, section one of the exam:

 

1. HDFS (17%)

  • Describe the function of HDFS daemons
  • Describe the normal operation of an Apache Hadoop cluster, both in data storage and in data processing
  • Identify current features of computing systems that motivate a system like Apache Hadoop
  • Classify major goals of HDFS Design
  • Given a scenario, identify appropriate use case for HDFS Federation
  • Identify components and daemon of an HDFS HA-Quorum cluster
  • Analyze the role of HDFS security (Kerberos)
  • Determine the best data serialization choice for a given scenario
  • Describe file read and write paths
  • Identify the commands to manipulate files in the Hadoop File System Shell

Hi Jervis,

Thanks a lot, As still not clear from the content that whether it is a type of : Question and Multiple choice answers to it or is it a descriptive type exam for CCA 500.  

Please help me in finding the pattern of the exam.

Anyone of Hadoop gurus, who has given the certification recently also can share the pattern to help me in preparing for the test.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Venkata Ramakrishna D
